Clever Girls

Title MVP

4: Weir, Alison, Children of England, Pimlico 1997, p5 (Primary- I’m pretty sure is from The life of Jane Dormer, Duchess of Feria – Dormer is the pull quote and if it’s from her this is usually this source, but I’m not sure – it wasn’t footnoted)

5: Weir, Alison Children of England, Pimlico 1997, p5-6 (Primary- Clifford, Henry, The Life of Jane Dormer Duchess of Feria, 1610 p168)

q: Letters and papers of Henry VIII, November 1536 1-5 (Items 955 – 957) You’re too general 957 – You’re wrong about your taxes – 955

11: Moorhouse, Geoffrey, The Pilgrimage of Grace,  Weidenfield & Nicolson, 2002, Ch 9 A Battle Waiting to be won p155 (It’s a devastatingly accurate take.)

5: The Spanish Chronicle P33, it’s way out of order.

Catherine Fillol May Have Had Issues

6: Dictionary of national biography 1885-1900, Marriages to Catherine Fillol and Anne Stanhope in Section 308, ‘Catherine’s sons second’ clause in creation of Dukedom of Somerset in section 309.

Above’s source for the marginal note is Courthope’s Peerage 1857, p249 – in the footnote – calls the source ‘written in an old hand’ but I’m not sure that earns it the ’17th century’ notation it gets generously given in Catherine Fillol’s wikipedia page.

7: Yeah, also on Fillol’s wikipedia page it ‘seems to be implied by a remark in her father’s will’ that she might have gone to a convent. I’m not sure I’m going hunting for that will when her father died in 1527, and it looks like Catherine and Edward’s youngest son was born in 1529, and Wikipedia’s not substantiating that with a reference for the point.

Godamnit. Still, from the except, it sounds more like a contingency plan to provide an income for Catherine if her marriage broke down. It doesn’t say she’s currently in a convent, or she has to go to one, it doesn’t specify a convent, it says if she’s living in a convent she gets £40 per year.

If you don’t start from ‘adulteress’, it sounds more like a backup plan for Catherine than punishment. maybe her father didn’t trust Edward that much.

And that’s the only thing I can find that doesn’t turn out to have roots in the assumptions made in that Courthorpe’s Peerage footnote report to suggest the marriage ended before she died.

Favorites are problematic

Joffrey?

Someone Drop a flag

The Executioner?

8: As opposed to his historical inspriation Robert Constable, who took his ass straight home at this point and got arrested for failing to surrender himself after being pardoned.

I Don’t Like Riddles.

q2: Starkey maintains Aske died with the traditional ‘ Hanging in chains on the walls and death by dehydration/exposure’ method, Moorhouse describes a hanging like the one we see in the Tudors, and that Henry at least acquiesced to Aske’s request that he be dead before he was dismembered.  Aske dies next recap, It might be a bit clearer to me by then.
